Meanwhile, one must scratch one's head at the staggering irony of some of Clinton's supporters demanding she be treated like a testosterone-filled masculine leader while simultaneously playing the gender victim card on her behalf, claiming the men are ganging up on her.
Pundits noted that Clinton's rivals exposed other inconsistencies, such as her promise that her husband would release the couple's private records at the Clinton Library while defending Bill's concealment of those records.
True enough. But the senator's record of duplicity goes back much further. Remember when she was running for the Senate and said she supported clemency for FALN terrorists to ingratiate herself to Puerto Rican voters? When a public backlash followed, she demanded that her husband "immediately withdraw" his clemency offer -- as if she had been at arm's length from him during the entire ordeal.
The magnitude of her deception and chutzpah were soon revealed when it was learned that the terrorists had accepted Bill Clinton's offer two days before Hillary demanded he withdraw it. Indecisiveness? Hardly. Rather, it was raw political maneuvering in furtherance of naked political ambition with abject disregard for the rule of law -- just as with driver's licenses for illegals.
A more recent example is her absurd claim that George Bush duped her into supporting the Iraq War resolution by lying about the intelligence. No, she supported the resolution when it was politically expedient because she had to prove herself to be commander in chief material in anticipation of her presidential campaign.
The dirty little secret about Hillary Clinton -- as some leftist e-mailers have outright admitted to me -- is that Democrats know she's lying about her vote on the resolution but simply don't care. What matters is that she say what she needs to say to get elected, as the end justifies the means.
So please, spare us the nonsense about Clinton being indecisive. We know that Clinton is nothing if not studiously methodical, calculating and determined to say and do anything necessary to win.
Given her astronomical negatives, which could prevent her from receiving a majority in a two-candidate race, she's surely praying for a third-party candidate to split the vote and pave the way for her winning plurality.
Let (SET ITAL) us (END ITAL) pray certain justifiably disillusioned Christian conservatives don't answer her prayer.
